Welcome to the best Jeep Wrangler forum in the known world. That sounds like a tremendous purchase. You're right, get that off-road ASAP. That poor vehicle has been internally groaning to go off-road with all those accessories. Enjoy! Again, welcome!

Newbie with a '03 Wrangler

Hello. I just purchased my first Jeep, a 2003 Wrangler Sahara. The description as the seller advertised it is as follows:
2003 Jeep Wrangler - Sahara Edition
- 41,500 miles
- Never been off-road
- Dana 44 rear end
- 6 cylinder
- Automatic transmission
- Tinted glass
- Hard Top and Soft Top
- New tires in January of 2008 (33X12.50X15) - $750
- New battery in January of 2008
- New 8000 lb. winch (never used) - $450
- Class III hitch on rear- $175
- Jeep neoprene seat covers - $375
- ARB bumper - $900
- 2 1/2 inch Old Man Emu suspension lift - $900
- Excellent condition...$16, 250

I payed $15,900. I would have chosed a standard trans but my daughter will drive this to school and she is not very good with a stick. It does appear this vehicle has never been off road. Unlike the previous owner I will take it offroad. I have a problem getting it to stay in 4WL. Transfere case wants to jump into nuetral when in 4WL. It jumps out just after I start to apply any power. After many tries (10-15) it will stay. It does not do this in 4WH. I suspect it is a linkage issue due to the lift kit. It is also rather difficult to get back into 2WH after being in 4WH or 4WL. Any thoughts?

Oh yea, sorry if this is the wrong place to post this. Please direct me to the correct place.
